By Syed Abul-Ala' Maududi
Maududi's translation and commentary on the Qur'an "The Meaning of the Qur'an" ranks as one of the best such works in existence today. Unlike many early translators Maududi uses the standard technique of providing an explanation of the Qur'anic verses from the Sunnah of the Prophet (pbuh) including the historical reasons behind the verses. Below is a list of Maududi's introductions to each chapter in the Qur'an. Unfortunately this represents a very small portion of the six volumes which comprise the complete commentary.
